Rebuilding school for street children
by Marjan Schaapman on 29 May, 2016

In the first quarter of 2016, the old trade school for street children and school dropouts in Dagoretti (Nairobi, Kenya) has been replaced. The old rusty corrugated iron sheets have been replaced by a building with a foundation, walls from steel frames and galvanized corrugated sheets, windows, doors and a roof!

 

Thanks to a sponsorship from Spakenburg we could early this year make funds available to purchase building materials and tools, and to pay for some skilled workers. The organization ‘Tools to work’ in Teteringen (Breda, The Netherlands) made the necessary teaching tools available.

The Levozy Self Help Group is an organization that helps street children and school dropouts from Dagoretti by offering them education and health care, and aims to reduce poverty by helping them to generate revenue. The small training center in Nairobi offers about 50 street children vocational training in trades like car mechanic, electrician, tailoring and sewing clothes, knitting and embroidery.
